Religious ’doublethink’ – basis of denial of reality and Spiritual ’doublethink’ When there arises a conflict between facts we perceive and ideas we hold, “doublethink” often comes into play. Spiritual teachings often require a lot of such double-thinking, for they deal with an alleged transcendental reality which cannot be perceived and which apparently contradict what ‘mere’ worldly conditions imply...

Perception And Reality, Fiction and Fact in religion The same basic assumption underpins all religious beliefs – that is, the acceptance of perceptions (in the broad sense) as fact, when they may just as well be fiction.  There is a very widespread ethos saying ‘People must be allowed to believe what they want’

Fallacies in doctrines of 'karma' (and healing) The conflict between traditional doctrines of karma and scientific rationality. Variants in doctrine are compared with the current state of human knowledge

"Be happy. Your happiness is my happiness" Sai Baba This superficial advice by the self-proclaimed 'Universal Teacher' is more than he can follow himself, as the photographic evidence attests.

The 'Divine mystery' of Sathya Sai Baba Creating and maintaining a mystery about oneself involves learning to avoid all awkward questions and especially keep all followers in fear of asking awkward things.

The Power of Sathya Sai Baba Complete insulation from normal society, the press and all questioners - and deep level protection through military guards and undercover security forces are but one element in the power of Sathya Sai Baba in remaining unaccountable to anyone for anything.

Avoidance of vital issues, like sex, AIDS by ‘Universal teacher’One would expect that a teacher worth his salt would have something educative and knowledgeable to say on the subject of human sexuality and the many issues which surround it and problems which arise from it, but it is far too 'touchy' for Sathya Sai Baba. One can but ask why?

Narcissism - the bane of Sathya Sai Baba The various symptoms of Narcissistic personality disorder are seen throughout Sathya Sai Baba's discourses, his behaviour in interviews and his many actions which have been described by devotees and critics alike.

Student sex abuse testimony has come out all the time

Guru-buster Premanand exposed Gerald Moreno Basava Premanand, the world-famous "guru buster", was harassed massively by the insignificant Gerald Moreno, who evidently works only in virtual reality as a web troll.

Sathya Sai Baba seen on the moon? This old failed miracle continues to fascinate blind Sai followers... who are deluded and even hypnotized to a laughable degree by the visions within their well-washed brains. Sai Baba never appeared on the moon - or NASA and world astronomy would have mentioned this detail surely (?).

'The Pioneer' report on the Sathya Sai Baba bedroom murder case An interesting report by a trusted source about the secrecy of Sai Baba and his authorities around the cover-up around the Sai Baba murder incident 1993

The Statesman confirmed the cover-up of murders in Sai Baba's bedroom The Statesman stated: "A 1993 incident in which police shot dead four of his followers and his attendants murdered two was hushed up with intervention from the top the then home minister, SB Chavan. The Baba, who was present when the four were shot dead, was never questioned". Enough said!

Sathya Sai Baba ‘leelas’ The lengths to which Sai Baba followers go to get answers from this most difficult person to meet or get a straight answer from include all manner of superstitious 'tests' like flipping open a book and taking the first sentence read as an 'answer' to a question... and other lunatic fringe practices.

Some of the highly conflicting reports vs. evidence on Sathya Sai Baba followers and visitor numbers Were one to believe Sai Baba or his representatives, he has anything from 60 to 600 million followers - sometimes even more are claimed. But official statistics conflict greatly with this. 10-20 million is more like the figure, now mostly Indians.

Sathya Sai Baba Cultist Yaani Drucker Claims Spiritual Enlightenment A very confused and yet egocentric devotee of Sai baba - at whom he shouted "you are an animal" before a group of US devotees was later raped brutally on Shivarathri night in front of a Sai Baba shrine.

David Bailey on Sathya Sai Baba (transcript from phone call)
Excerpts with surprising facts that came to light when this great favourite of Sai Baba was phoned by Thomas Wiehe of Sweden - concerning the reasons why the Bailey's rejected Sai Baba and all his works.

Swami Nityananda tries the Sathya Sai Baba defense ploy The sessions court denied Nithyananda bail because he "and his disciples would tamper with the evidence.” The Public Prosecutor (Srirama Reddy) stated that Nithyananda’s victims were afraid to come forward as witnesses because the rich and influential followers of the godman were restraining them. Typical of Sathya Sai Baba's avoidance of prosecution.

Tantrick sex Swami Nithyananda's farce plays on Swami Nityananda is certainly a major deceiver, for he claimed to be a celibate and even that he is “not a man” (i.e. impotent)

Nityananda, Sathya Sai Baba et al… Do Hindus Really Approve Sexual Immorality?

Dangerous to Rationalize Rape. A major Sathya Sai Baba Follower’s Example Analyzing the belief put forth by Jaani Drucker which Pittard holds is dangerous to vulnerable survivors of rape etc. as supporting a flight into denial.

Jaani Drucker: 'the Ego' misunderstood and self-nihilation In denying flat out that the ego and entire world are real, Jaani Drucker implies that she herself is unreal, while in fact she is real but totally unrealistic... following Sai Baba, she wants everyone to annihilate their egos and minds!

Sathya Sai Baba failing - at the mercy of power brokers Reports from various foreign and Indians who have visited Sai Baba ashrams, or have information from those who have, tell that he is very reduced physically, his hands shake all the time, he looks poorly and unsmiling and that he is at the mercy of those who mind him, having had to give up control over his Trust and institutions.

More sworn testimony on several Sathya Sai Baba sex abuses
A former follower wrote at length about being sexually abused by Sai Baba, and stated three friends of his told him they were also abused. Such testimony is brave, when those who act from public duty despite the possible consequences for themselves who have nothing to gain by it. That they should be lying is entirely unlikely, and there are many of them from all over.

Barry Pittard Replies To Sathya Sai Center Rape Survivor’s Note To Him Sai 'apostle' Yaani Drucker, who was brutally raped on the holy day of Shivarathri before the shrine to Sai Baba, is promoting the 'teaching' that it was God;s will and for her own good... that in reality it did not happen as this world is unreal. One has to have sympathy, even though she virtually turns crime into a virtue.

Damning abuse testimony against Sathya Sai Baba Ullrich Zimmermann gave three long interviews on a US TV Channel, which can still be seen. Transcripts give a particularly accurate description of the ashram, the overheated atmosphere of blind belief and he reports that these abuses are widely known and discussed among young men and others.

Why Former Devotees Feel Obliged to Expose Sai Baba How and why would former devotees who gave up decades of their life, their time, energy and often much money to forward what they believed was a genuinely spiritual organization and undertaking now spend time and energy on exposing Sathya Sai Baba. It does not bear thinking about for most of those who remain in denial.

U.S. State Department Named Sathya Sai Baba To BBC’s ‘The Secret Swami’
The BBC received confirmation that the US State Department 'Travel warning page and Consular information sheet, November 23, 2000' referred directly to Sathya Sai Baba

Can Sathya Sai Baba be deceived, and if so...
One of the earliest, most respected devotees of SB quotes him saying that anyone who deceived him "will die with their heads smashed to pieces"!

Sathya Sai Baba spoke against homosexuality! Sai Baba directed Dr. John Hislop - Chairman of the US Sathya Sai Society - to exclude all homosexuals from the Organization centres and groups unless they repented. He called homosexuality 'a weakness' and yet is himself widely accused by young men of homosexual abuse.

BBC radio 4 interview transcript – Sai sex abuse The BBC examined the question whether Sai Baba is a holy guru whose wisdom is profound, or a sexual predator? The evidence presented there and elsewhere answers this adequately.

Not a 'smear campaign' against Sathya Sai Baba Were my writings a smear campaign [which they are definitively not] they could be contested by Sathya Sai Baba legally. Yet no one has ever brought a suit against me, not even a lawyer's letter!

Sai Baba instructed top leader in the West to ban homosexuals from the Organization, and centres The widely accused homosexual Sathya Sai Baba's top representative John Hislop wrote: "Baba “told me in an interview (which you have seen) that a homosexual is denied Membership in a Center, that this person should be questioned closely and be admitted only if the person desires to change their life away from that of a homosexual, and that people were homosexuals because of weakness of mind."

On Leaving the Sathya Sai Baba Cult – Ex Leaders and Rank-and-File
The Sathya Sai Baba sexual abuses became known to the wider world first when the Internet made communication between otherwise isolated and cast-out former devotees of Sai Baba When the storm of allegations broke through David Bailey's 'The Findings' and a series of others (Duncan Roads of Nexus Magazine), Terry Gallagher of the Sathya Sai Organization, Barry Pittard realized he must investigate the matter, which he has done most thoroughly.

On Leaving A Powerful Global Cult. Sathya Sai Baba Example (Part 2) Barry Pittard relates how he eventually contacted most of those who came out in public to accuse Sathya Sai Baba of sexual abuses. His evidence is very compelling because he had the trust of those persons, unlike the few defenders of Sai Baba who actually tried to contact them, mainly to tell them they could not be telling the truth!

On Leaving A Powerful Global Cult. Sathya Sai Baba Example (Part 3) Barry Pittard reports how he spoke by phone and corresponded with a number of former devotee sexual abuse professionals who knew of various cases of Sathya Sai Baba's alleged sex abuse at first hand.

The 'test of faith' and Sathya Sai Baba Many religions and not least religious teachers, gurus and supposed 'masters' require that disciples must believe that he everything that happens is ordained by God, whether directly or though higher 'divine powers' and other entities. This 'test of faith' has serious consequences and leads only into delusion. Unless it is finally overcome!

Sathya Sai Baba's evil-bashing 'deadly sin' fundamentalism Hardly any India preaches in a more Hindus version of 'bible-bashing' than Sathya Sai Baba, whose Victorian puritanism and primitive black-and-white ideas about good and evil persons, holy men and demons demonstrate better than anything could that his claim to be a 'Universal Teacher' is totally without foundation.

Sathya Sai Baba on Moses' love for Jesus! So far perhaps No. 1 in the hilarious Sai Baba boob stakes

Cover-up letter: Hislop wholly neglects duty of care The final letter in a series by deceased Dr. John Hislop who tried his worst to deny duty of care to an alleging sexually abused youth and manipulated his leaders to accept that it was all lies and crazy allegations. Time has shown that there are many, many more such!See also 'Sex scandal and Sathya Sai Baba - 3rd Hislop letter'

Isaac Tigrett and Prashanthi Nilayam The purveyor of a "mystical crystal skull" (long since exposed as a man-made C20th artifact) and every kind of rationalization, who admitted to BBC that he considered the sexual allegations to be true and who said that Sai Baba could go out and kill someone tomorrow without it affecting his faith... why say more?

Why Has Sathya Sai Baba Not Faced The Indian Justice System?
He is fully protected by Indian governmental and judicial corruption. His finance & support are electorally important while top politicians have long invested their prestige in him without realising his true nature. The celebrated Indian advocate Kamini Jaiswal represented a Supreme Court case brought by a former member of Sathya Sai Baba’s intelligence and security wing. They were thwarted by Sai Baba devoted judges.

Lisa de Witt: attack on editor of Nexus, Duncan Roads One attacker of Duncan Roads, Lisa de Witt, uses extreme abusive language and totally unfounded claims, while claiming to be a 'researcher', for which she has zero qualifications

Duncan Roads and Sai Baba cyber terrorists The editor of the prestigious Nexus Magazine lost faith in Sathya Sai baba after personal face-to-face investigation of claimants of sexual abuse by the guru. He was attacked relentlessly by fanatical defenders of Sai Baba, and replied to them rationally.

Al Rahm’s Explanatory Letter To Sathya Sai Baba Internet Proxy Gerald Moreno The father of Alaya Rahm, who tells how he was sexually abused for a long period by Sai Baba, replied to his attacker, Joe Moreno, in a decent and rational way. No effect on the fanatical Moreno, who is in denial about having himself once been groomed for possible sex by Sai Baba.

More student communications on Sai Baba sex abuse Former student at Sai Baba's college tells investigators about Sathya Sai Baba's pedophile activities and his hate of women and other details from 'behind the scenes'.

Democratic Societies Need To Face Issues On Cults In exposing the global Sathya Sai Baba cult and its leader, whom successive Indian governments and institutions have long and corruptly protected, a striking fact emerges: governments, and indeed whole societies, fail to face the problem of cults.

Some prominent ex-devotees of Sathya Sai Baba The number of office-bearers, founder members of groups and centres, prominent seva workers and other devotees who have proclaimed their resignation from all Sai Baba related organizations or other activities is considerable, though it still doubtless only represents less that the 'tip of an iceberg'. Most 'apostates' prefer to move on without making any waves.

ON VISITING THE SAI BABA ASHRAMS Many difficulties, disappointments and potential dangers - up to and including murder - face those who visit Sathya Sai Baba ashrams. Tight security is used against visitors to protect the fearful Guru-God and discrimination of non-ethnic Indian followers, especially Westerners, has become rife. Judging by countries I know well, the current list of over 200 names of former members or active followers registered represents only perhaps 5% of those who have left Sathya Sai baba's organization and movement, as most do not wish to speak out and be demonized - many wish to continue to visit India in safety.

Is Claimed Indian ‘Avatar’ Sathya Sai Baba God? Or Good? Vital Links A list of links to important articles and blogs on the massive cover-up of Sathya Sai Baba's deceptions and failings.

Sathya Sai Baba Cult Fails To Win British Royalty The Sathya Sai Organization has made failed attempts to associate its figurehead with British Royalty, from the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh, to Prince Charles and others.

On visiting Sathya Sai Baba ashrams Many are the facts that are either suppressed, unmentioned, covered-up or strictly forbidden in discussion about the reality in Sai ashrams. The official and hagiographic literature therefore almost never tells of anything remotely negative about the ashrams - the supposed 'Abode of Supreme Peace', so visitors should prepare for many shocks and dangers.

Otherworldliness and futile escapism
Belief in a non-physical realm of spirits and deities is only a belief, and one which rather diverts energies and aspirations away from real solutions to human problems than showing any tangible contributions.

Narayan Dutt Tiwari and Sai Baba + a new sex scandal revelation
and Sai Baba endorsed N.D. Tiwari: resignation scandal
Two blogs exposing another prominent Sathya Sai baba devotee fully caught out in a sex scandal, the Governor of Sai Baba's home state, Andhra Pradesh, who was blessed by the self-announced "all-knowing" Sai Baba in public. for example in April 2005.

Khushwant Singh video clips: genital oiling, lingams, followers To the BBC presenter Tanya Datta on "The Secret Swami" documentary, this acclaimed author and journalist refutes ideas that genital oiling/oral sex by Sai Baba has anything whatever to do with Hindu religious tradition. He also reflects over the flawed nature of devotees and gurus.

Dr. Abraham Kovoor exposes Dr. Bhagavantam & Sai Baba One of Sai Baba's major earlier promoters was the atomic scientists Dr. S. Bhagavantam. He endorsed Sai Baba miracles, but he had not investigated them critically. Dr. Abraham Kovoor did so, and exposed a major fraud.

Belief in black magic and witches in India Sathya Sai Baba believes in black magicians and their arts, having stated this in his own words and also as reported by prominent early devotees such as Smt. Vijayamma in her self-biographical account.

The ultimate brand name: God The title or name ‘God’ and its many equivalents in diverse religions and cultures, is owned by no one. Literally. Nor is it the property of any corporation or church, though it is perhaps the most powerful 'logo' for the collection of gigantic wealth.

Avoiding leaps of faith into conclusions Irrational human behaviour is very widespread, and many people will believe just about anything, especially if it suits them, their lifestyle, their habits and accumulated opinions

Mystical and religious explanations being crowded out As science continues, decade after decade, to fill more and more of the gaps in our knowledge, there is less and less space for the mystical explanation and the supposed ‘divine hand’. The process of cumulative human knowledge based on massive observation and experimentation – instead of superstition and speculative theology – has continued since earliest human history.

Some reflections on Advaita Vedanta How the otherworldly advaitic belief system developed - that all is god and god is all etc. - was given by Joel Kramer and Diana Alstead in their seminal book ‘The Guru Papers, Masks of Authoritarian Powers’.

David Lane Ph.D. on Sathya Sai Baba's abuses An early whistle-blower on the many reports of Sathya Sai Baba sexual abuses wrote a telling journal, from which short excerpts are reproduced here

Failings in Indian Justice - by ex-Chief Election Commissioner T.N. Seshan The Indian judicial system as originally inherited from the British stagnated, but is slowly caching up with the developed world - but only on paper, it appears. Abuses and failing are so huge and so many, as any follower of Indian events knows, that police and protected person can and do 'get away with murder'.

Indian police get away with murder - outrage in India The latest juridical scandal decision outrages Indian citizens, and bears out further what the above entry indicates

Sex and religion - from virgin ball-goers to holy homosexuality Summary of new book from Oslo University Press

Tsunami anniversary - Sathya Sai Baba's opinion on it The disastrous tsunami of 2004 was not caused, according to self-professed God Incarnate Sathya Sai Baba - either by God (i.e. himself), nor was it a punishment, but was solely caused by the moral lapses of human beings! He fails to explain how these phenomena have existed far, far back in time before even the first mammals arose.

Sexual abuse complaints with impunity against Sathya Sai Baba None of the score of signed testimonies of sexual abuse - widely publicized on the Internet since 1999 - have caused Sathya Sai Baba to instigate any libel suit, by which he could have tried to clear his name. That he could not sue anyone - except in India where he is protected to the highest echelons of society and is virtually above the law - speaks volumes! He simply dare not give his accusers a chance to avoid costs and bring him to the justice he richly deserves.

Sathya Sai Organization's abuse cover-up & unaccountability Former head of Sai Baba's operation in the Americas, Dr. John Hislop, claimed the many young men accusing Sai Baba of sexual interferences showed “primitive survival reactions” and "projections". But why would so many come forward, braving the consequences, even after four boys were murdered in cold blood in Sai Baba’s bedroom apartment! Whose “primitive survival reactions” are involved?

Powerful sex abuse testimony against Sathya Sai Baba The German national news journal 'Bild' published an account of sexual molestation and subsequent 'goonda' harassment of Jens Sethi and his girlfriend after he explained how he refused Sai Baba's sexual advances. An affidavit to that effect was lodged with Hamburg police.

The wild pseudo-spiritual shenanigans of one of Sathya Sai Baba's biggest donors, Hard Rocker Isaac Tigrett, continue to amaze observers crystal skulls (faked), seventh ray masters, preposterous stories about Sai baba... and now his own ashram!

Revealing letters on sexual abuse claims by Dr. John Hislop
Summary of the Hislop letters issue by Timothy Conway, former leader of the San Francisco Sathya Sai Centre.

Letter by John Hislop to Sathya Sai Organization leaders The first letter which is aimed at the cover-up of sex abuse claims against Sathya Sai Baba by the mother of a US boy at his college.

'The Secret Swami' & U.S. State Department Warning against Sai Baba Refutation of bogus claims about withdrawal of a warning by the US State Department's directly naming of Sathya Sai Baba as engaging in "inappropriate sexual behaviour", including Video clip of BBC confirming this.

Major contradictions about 'Divinity' and more Sai Baba has claimed both that there is a spark of divinity in every being, that there is no such spark in those who criticize him... and other confusing and contradictory claims about divinity.

Gerald Moreno, master of two-bit triviality
Moreno falsely accuses Priddy of having hailed Sai Baba as Allah who sent Muhammed, and the Father who sent Jesus. I did neither. I reported SB's own claims, for I always had personal reservations (but one could not express these without serious consequences while in the Organization). Moreno makes a mountain out of a tiny typo I made.. making himself utterly ridiculous.

World AIDS Day, India. Sai Baba's voice is silent on the issue! Sexuality is altogether far too touchy an issue for Sai Baba, who stands so widely accused and so credibly by many young men of sexually abusing them.

Sathya Sai Baba and AIDS The self-proclaimed 'Universal Teacher' has hardly a word to say about the universal issues of sexuality... other than to recommend celibacy in all situation other than for child--bearing. Homosexuality, sex education, condoms, AIDS are all strictly taboo subjects for him the hypocritical puritan.

Baba's birthday a low-key affair Express News Service 25 Nov 2009 The Indian press reporter that police outnumbered devotees! Very few foreigners (no doubt due to the 'credibility crunch' rather than credit problems). He could not even cut his cake without strong assistance.

Sai Baba's hand-washing hypocrisy on display Preposterous claims, pretentious talk, fantastic promises and predictions... all belied by the actual state of affairs in which Sai Baba never speaks out about the terrible and continuing calamitous human rights' situation in India with 1,2 million child prostitute slaves etc. etc.

Human Values - Sai Baba's truncated ideas The SSEHV (Human Values programme) of Sai baba is an ill-conceived, skimpy and retrograde form of education that no professional educational experts would condone as it stands, it being too simplistic, rigid and restrictive for modern life

Sathya Sai Baba, defender of the caste system
The age-old Indian caste system is still the bane of the country, with huge social inequalities and murderous divisions, but Sai Baba supports the basic system as unavoidable.

Reply to a Sathya Sai Devotee’s Note re: David and Faye Bailey Sai Baba devotees are still trying to blacken the name of David Bailey - a former favourite of SB with over 100 interviews, teaching at his college etc. - because he stood up for the truth when he was told by students of sexual abuses.

The Guru Papers - and Sathya Sai Baba Though acclaimed as an unique avatar, Sathya Sai Baba can be seen by the independent observer to be typical of Indian gurus in general since his life and 'teachings' are entirely in line with the exploitation so faithfully pinpointed in this book.

R.D. Shepherd Exposes Sathya Sai Baba Defender Gerald Moreno A wide-ranging author whose civil and scholarly approach to the subject he treats had - among many others - become the target of unprincipled, derogatory and low-minded attacks by Sathya Sai Baba's chief campaigner on the Internet.

Sathya Sai Baba's actions constantly belie his words
Despite his constant self-praise as an embodiment of Love, Sai Baba calls others "zeroes" for talking and not following up... but he is a prime example of saying one thing, doing another.

V.K. Narasimhan - confidences to Robert Priddy The decisive point for me was when V.K. Narasimhan told me the truth about the 1993 murders - and he should have known as he was on the scene directly and had access to all the top people involved. All this I recorded in my notebook as soon as he had told me.

The Dilemma in Worshipping a God of Megalomaniac Claims In trying to hang onto one's belief in the positive nature of Sai Baba, devotees have to swallow very many unpalatable absurdities and so they keep silent about this and most dare not defend any of his grotesque claims.

Senior Indian Policeman (Rtd) Speaks Out About Sathya Sai Baba Murders Cover Up Senior Indian police officer published a book with many new facts about the Sai Baba bedroom murders

Fleeting name, fame and Sathya Sai Baba Through history, many people - from rulers and kings to upstarts and charlatans, have claimed to be God, and have been believed. But all have perished and their claims are not taken seriously by sane people. Sathya Sai Baba will suffer the same fate.

Sai Baba - omnipotent as claimed? Evidence is easily found that Sai Baba is not what he claims, omnipotent. Far from it... he cannot even control what happens in his own fiefdom.

Sathya Sai devotees in total denial Impossible for anyone to know with certainty that Sathya Sai Baba's is not a sexual abuser, since no one can supervise him - especially not at night or in private interviews, as so widely claimed by those who tell how have been molested. Yet India's P.M. Vajpayee and other deluded worshippers claim otherwise!

How to recognise a cult Brief overview of four of the many indicators which are easily recognisable in the Sathya Sai Organization and other Sai baba governed institutions.

Sathya Sai Baba's 'divine magnetism' Going recklessly (ignorantly) head-on against science and common sense, Sai Baba claims that everything is magnetic, from gold to flowers, to temples (but not those places which are not temples??). Most of all. he was so magnetic that his feet stuck to the ground (the earth was so attracted to him!)

Miracles 'With Bhagavan at Kodaikanal' Worshipper and Sai-selected vive-Chancellor os Sai Baba's underachieving 'university' excels himself in rash statements about things he can know nothing whatever about - especially the jewelry Sita wore etc. A risible account showing how Sai professors are far from up to scratch!

Sathya Sai Baba: lingam photos-liberation from rebirth Hoping to regenerate interest after fall-off of devotees due to the scandals from 1999, Sai Baba took up his 'linga' production on Shivarathri, promising that those who saw one emerge would not have to be reborn! Hislop saw emergences many times, but Sai Baba told him he must be reborn!

The magnet of Sathya Sai Baba's 'lingam' miracles The trick of swallowing then later regurgitating an object (an ivory ball) was first perfected by Harry Houdini. Since then numerous Indian fakirs and frauds have done the same... including Swami Premananda and, of course, Sathya Sai Baba.

Close-up photo of Sai Baba ring materializing? Looked at in close-up, a well-known photo of an enamel ring supposedly materialized under Sai Baba's hand shows it to be held in place by his thumb!

Faked emergence of egg-sized golden 'lingam' - filmed proof Sathya Sai Baba's alleged "miraculous" production of egg-shaped lingams from his stomach was something of a public disaster in 2004. BBC footage shows that the Baba can no longer even perform the trick.

Sathya Sai Baba's gross lies in public - with photo Hardly in the spirit of Jesus, Sai baba used his Christmas Discourse of 2000 to tell the grossest lies about those who have called his bluff and told about him sexually molesting them. His anger boiled over as he thumped his lectern, complaining that they did this for money! He gave no hint of evidence whatever, as there is none.

The ashrams of Sathya Sai Baba Military style security, undercover armed agents, extensive metal detection and very thorough and sometimes invasive body checks are the rule at Sai Baba's ashrams. Then there is the undisciplined and pushing crowds, imperious servitors and Seva Dals, unfairness to foreigners and much more to make a visit an unholiday

Sathya Sai Baba - kindness and thankfulness He expects everyone to show gratitude - above all to God, who he claims to be here on earth in the fullest possible incarnation! He is never thankful to anyone for anything... he takes everything for granted, since he says he owns the entire universe anyway and so it is his due. See also Gratitude for what and to whom - Sathya Sai Baba?

Sathya Sai Baba on Wikipedia The debate about what one can and can't say about Sathya Sai Baba continues on Wikipedia, where some of the most recalcitrant pro-Sai followers still post subjective points of view and avoid the rules for objective documentation on Wikipedia, ignoring the input of serious persons with well-documented materials.

Sathya Sai Baba - Good and Evil Who is responsible for the bad (sometimes called 'evil') in the world? Sai Baba claims it is not him but everyone else, but his arguments are a mish-mash of conflicting and bogus reasons.

Indulal Shah, flawed exponent of Sathya Sai Baba's precepts For decades I. Shah was the leader of the Sathya Sai Organization, where he was so authoritarian and self-importantly rude to his 'subordinates' that it set a bad example and lost many competent persons to any good works that were actually done.

Sai Baba- self-transformation through divine love? and Transformation of people by Sathya Sai Baba One hears a lot about this, but it is always personal and subjective with accounts of how good a person one became after being 'transformed' by Sathya Sai Baba.

Petition For Official Investigation Into Sathya Sai Baba Cult
The reasons for the organizing of a public petition are clear to those who know how the Sathya Sai Organization's cultist leaders suppress every single untoward incident and all feed-back from followers so as to polish Sai Baba's already badly stained image

On Sathya Sai Baba and good works Good works - social and educations projects - do not erase ill deeds, such as Sai Baba's personal involvement in the cover-up of murders in his own bedroom. See a recently emerged police report on Sai Baba's major bribery cover-up

Phyllis Krystal and Sai Baba Youth, UK
Mrs. Krystal was reportedly apprised of sexual molestations abuses by Sathya Sai Baba by various persons, yet she claimned that he is God and hences can do anything he wishes.

Love and Light - Sathya Sai Organization UK The Indian community in Leicester will no doubt predominate at the new Sathya Sai school in the newly-acquired building. This will be a school based on familes having sectarian beliefs og a most irrtational kind and an educational ideal which is religiously fundamentalist in many respects.

Prominent Indians Berate India’s Rife Political Corruption Because dissenters who have left Sai baba point out how he and his key servitors have only deepened the corruption that is rife in India, they are attacked as being "India bashers". They never bash India or Indians as such, but only those corrupt and criminal politicians, godmen and organizations and the many illegal and superstitious practices which curtail the liberty and human rights of the vast deprived hundreds of millions, not least dissenting minorities.

India's election gives some hope The Congress party were reelected in sufficient numbers to make an effective government which promises a revival of secularism and taking more account of the needs of the poor and suffering than has been possible for decades. The increasingly aware electorat - including 400 million new young voters - showed their concern for underemployment, land alienation, credit failures, migration and a severe deficit of human security - and mot least their need for food security, sanitation, reduction of massive bribery and their inequality and powerlessness in practice before the law... plus many other terrible ills and social failings.

Sathya Sai Baba makes many promises But many followers experience that he does not keep them. They try to rationalise this by all kinds of acrobatic twists and turns of mind. Read some examples of his break of trust and how it is explained away by those who are too deeply committed for too long to dare to see the facts in the face.

Sai Baba: boys as properties (and 'improper ties') Sai baba claims that he has not property, and that his only property is his students. How come? What kind of 'ownership' does he exercise over them? One does not need to look far to find out. See also Sathya Sai Baba's promises - part 1 - part 2 - part 3

Sathya Sai Baba Sect: A Crisis of Trust Some of the increasingly apparent facts that bear out those critical of Sathya Sai Baba and his cult is that his movement is eroding from within.

Golden Age of the Avatar The repeated announcements of a Golden Age by Sai baba have been confounded time and again. The literally incredible ’spiritual’ world transformation by Sai Baba and his followers is all sheer make-believe, as events have demonstrated. Read about Rita Bruce's report on Sai Baba's prophesy!

A Cult’s Powerful Grip. (Sathya Sai Baba Sect Example) Many Sai devotees have responded to those in dissent ignoring that they themselves long honored the integrity, devotion and dedication to service of many who have since left, among these being long-time foremost leaders. The cultic grip on minds is revealed more and more in the Sathya Sai movement.

Some prominent ex-devotees of Sathya Sai Baba A list of many dissenters, from founder members of Sathya Sai Organization centres and leading officer-bearers to prominent members and other followers who have left Sai Baba - overwhelmingly since the revelations which became widespread from 1999 onwards.

Sathya Sai Baba and the truth
The name 'Sathya' translates a 'truth'. Does this self-proclaimed omniscient saviour of mankind live up to his word? Some of his statements are posted here and examined carefully.

Inscrutable, accounting to no man, Sathya Sai Baba Proclaiming that he is a mystery beyond the reach of any human investigation, Sathya Sai Baba requires that his followers do not investigate him in any way other than that he prescribes... unquestioning faith and belief in his word and actions.

Understanding Sathya Sai Baba's responses to questions On how nearly all followers who have sparse contact with Sathya Sai Baba attain contact through accepted ways of taking his often ambiguous words and his behaviour at darshan. Also Sai Baba believers’ programmatic misinterpretations

Indulal Shah, cover-up man for Sai Baba Former Chairman of the world-wide Sathya Sai Organization was an extremely autocratic 'ruler' of office-bearers and member followers, allowing no feedback and excluding all those who he - or his main supporters - disliked.

Press Council of India Long Silent On Sathya Sai Baba Bedroom Killings The Press Council of India was asked by the Anantapur District Journalists' Union to inquire into the criticism of Sri Sathya Sai Baba against the Press for publishing news items and special articles on the June 6 incident that occurred in Prashanthi Nilayam in which six persons were killed. No response was forthcoming. See also Indian Newspaper Reports of Killings In Sai Baba’s Bedroom

The Fame of Name and Person - Sai Baba part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4 and part 5 A series of blogs giving insight into the causes of the continued following of this 'avatar' despite major and widespread revelations about his name and fame, his social projects, how he runs his ashrams and followership and not least about 'ungodly' behaviour

The worship of Sathya Sai Baba's person Having set himself up as a divine incarnation from his youth onwards, Sathya Sai Baba is the focus of a kind of mythology - especially among India devotees. This process of mythologisation of almost everything about him apparently gets more widespread as he becomes less available for personal contacts and continues to be unaccountable and beyond the scrutiny of anyone in his many private hours.

Sathya Sai Baba on 'free will' On no other subject, perhaps, is Sathya Sai vaguer - and often directly self-contradicting - than on that of human will... whether we have any degree of freedom or not. He emphasises total fatalism more often than he supports a degree of free will...

Sai Baba's humility and grandeur It is said by some close devotees that Sathya Sai Baba is the essence of humility. How this accords with his claims to be God Incarnate, to hold all power of the cosmos in one hand, to be able to transform earth into sky and vice-versa, is an enigma... unless one realises the arrogance and megalomania present.

Sathya Sai Baba as world saviour Well-known proclamations by Sathya Sai Baba are quoted on how he intends to save the planet and humanity... as well as some of his more incredible prophecies which have so far not come to pass.

Sathya Sai Baba says the whole world loves him, but can that be so? Some of the evidence is examined here, and references are given to sources.

Sathya Sai Baba as supreme servant of mankind Sathya Sai has laid claim to being the person on earth who does one thousand more times than any other to help humanity. On what is this claim based... here are some of the answers.

No Nobel Peace Prize For Self-Claimed God of Gods Sathya Sai Baba It was announced in Sathya Sai Baba centers round the world a decade ago that Sathya Sai Baba was a candidate for a Nobel Peace Prize. Despite a visit by Dr. Michael Noble, a great grandson of Alfred Nobel, who falsely claimed to represent the Nobel Foundation, Sathya Sai Baba was never mentioned by the Nobel Committee.

BBC and Other Film Footage Shows India’s Top Guru Sathya Sai Baba Faking Miracles This wealthy and highly authoritarian organization, which seeks to infiltrate mainstream civic, religious, education and political venues, will not be so frank as to show the waverers the BBC's revealing documentary 'The Secret Swami'

Isaac Tigrett. Selling Out Those Condemned to a House Of Blues Tigrett granted the ’probability’ that the allegations of sexual abuse of boys and young men were true, but he still adheres to his guru - saying he would not change if Sai baba went out and murdered someone tomorrow. He is reportedly now living at Puttaparthi.

India will lead the world - Sathya Sai Baba He continues to make impossible predictions about how he is reviving morality and values in India to the extent that this State will unify the entire world!. His predictions on this from the 1960s have long since failed.. as have many of his fantastic boasting pronouncements about himself and his organization

Sathya Sai Baba Man, Gerald Moreno: Islamic Terrorism Issue One of Gerald Moreno’s myriad character assassination forays against former Sai Baba devotee critics (and others like the Indian Rationalist B.Premanand and the independent British scholar Kevin Shepherd) has been the attempt to make it seem as though Barry Pittard would incite Islamic terrorism.

Sathya Sai Baba Sect and Its Hidden Agendas. A Caution Sectarian devotees around the world speak constantly of Truth, Right Conduct, Peace, Love and Non-Violence. They behave outwardly as having the appearance of professional and ethical responsibility. But there is are hidden agendas...

World leaders and Sathya Sai Baba who welcomes all important and rich persons, especially Presidents, Prime Ministers and royalty, always giving them pride of place over all who work selflessly for him. The super-rich despots - the King and Queen of Nepal - were among those so privileged - but not long after they were both shot down by their son! So much for Sai Baba's much vaunted 'grace and protection' of his worshippers.

Sathya Sai Baba and the Vedas - part one Claming that he is the embodiment of the Vedas, Sathya Sai Baba makes extraordinary claims for the knowledge they contain, but these are not followed up by the extraordinary proofs that this would require. On the contrary, his claims are almost entirely bogus as any educated person can appreciate.
Sathya Sai Baba and the Vedas - part two
Continuation of the previous posting.

Sathya Sai Baba’s Failed Moon Miracle Under Heavy Cloud His incredible statement (via his close aide and frequent translator Professor Anil Kumar on October 4, 2008) that he would give ‘visvarupa darshanam’ on the moon ended in crowd chaos when the sky was cloud-covered and the police had a serious time preventing threats to life and limb in all the milling of the crowds who had rushed to the designated site, the Sathya Sai airport (a white elephant on sale with sweeteners for anyone fool enough to buy it).

Why Do Prominent Sathya Sai Baba Sect Critics Persist? They see that there should be the presence of best practice standards of accountability and transparency. Of these, there is, in the Sathya Sai Baba sect, an abysmal lack.

Sathya Sai Baba blessings Devotees long for Sai Baba's blessings - invariably not once but countless times. The even use devious means to try to obtain them or prove they have somehow received them.. The ways in which he supposedly blesses are countless, many devised by the heated imaginations of those who cannot face the thought that he has not given them special attention, however fleetingly.

Sathya Sai Baba and the Dalai Lama Sathya Sai Baba doers not stand comparison to the Dalai Lama as a genuinely truthful, open and humble servant of people. That is why Sai followers try to show that the Dalai Lama endorses Sathya Sai Baba. However, they have to rely on the very thinnest of pretexts to make this claim... as they also did to try to show that the Duke of Edinburgh endorsed Sathya Sai Baba. Risible stuff!

Sathya Sai Baba ashrams in decline Since the revelations in 1999/2000, there had been a steady decline in interest in Sathya Sai baba in countries which have good Internet access and an educated population. This is seen in the persecution of foreigners who resided at the ashrams and the neglect and harassment (through visas etc.) of foreign (non-Indian) visitors.

Sathya Sai Baba - insider report A devotee in Oslo has special connections to Sai Baba servitors who told her that Sai baba sat and cried all day in his room. She also reported that there is a water shortage in Puttaparthi, of all places! That after the vastly expensive and largely failed 'Rayalaseema Water Project, financed by donations, brought fresh water to the Prashanthi Nilayam ashram and Puttaparthi village above all else!

Sathya Sai Baba prophesies his death Will he pass away at age 92 or 93, or again at 95 or 96 - as he has predicted on different occasions... or will he chose another time to die, as he has also implied to a close servitor, Ratan Lal.

Sathya Sai Baba blames everything on others, nothing on himself Sai Baba says that all the sufferings and difficulties in life experienced by anyone, including his devotees, is caused entirely by themselves and that he is to blame for nothing whatever. He even blames natural disturbances like earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis on humanity!

Dr. Naresh Bhatia's exposure of Sathya Sai Baba One of the greatest exposers of Sai Baba as a sexual abuser was by one of his very closest servitors, Dr. Naresh Bhatia, who worked at the Sathya Sai Super-Speciality Hospital blood bank. He challenged Sai Baba over a case of anal rape of a young boy. He was vilified and threatened - banned and accuse wd of all manner of sins.

Dreams of Sathya Sai Baba - imaginary or real That Sathya Sai Baba appears and intervenes in dreams has been believed by virtually every devotee for decades, for he told this on many occasions. What surprise when he suddenly held a discourse denying that he appears in anyone's dreams, that is is all imagination or the result of bad digestion etc..

Sathya Sai Baba - claims belied by actions The only way to tell a false from a true 'guru', according to Sai Baba, is to compare their words with their actions. When applied to him, huge discrepancies appear and his actions belie his words on many occasions..

Sathya Sai Organization: World Communities Need To Treat This Sect Cautiously The leaders of the international Sathya Sai Organization are highly secretive, authoritarian and unaccountable and are cultists on these and numerous other grounds.

Sathya Sai Baba’s ‘curtain of shame’ & ‘doors of disgrace’ What goes on behind the curtain and/or doors of Sai Baba's private interview room has been reported by many... and often it is credibly claimed this involves sexual molestation.

BBC Footage Exposes Fake Sathya Sai Baba Miracle In 2004 the BBC captured Sathya Sai Baba collapsing after pretending to miraculously materialize a gold Shivalingam and his claim that this small gold egg-shaped object weighted 3 tones!

Alice Meets Sathya Sai Baba Hinduism often regards the Shiva lingam as signifying wonder and majesty of creation-dissolution plus eternity. Sathya Sai Baba's fraudulent 'materializations' of lingams does questionable service to the religion he promotes far more than any other.

Explaining the influence of Sathya Sai Baba Some people ask why anyone every believes in Sathya Sai Baba, calling him a 3rd rate trickster and quite evidently a bogus guru because of his claim to create objects. The matter is not as simple as that - he has collected a vast amount of money and considerable number of followers, which requires some explanation. This requires a very many-sided, well-informed and critical understanding

Apartments in Prashanthi Nilayam and Brindavan Donors of large sums for the right to use an apartment at the Prashanthi Nilayam (Puttaparthi) and the Brindavan (Whitefield) ashrams cannot become legal or de facto owners. Donors once used to become ‘owners’ - but only in name, not in reality. One cannot ever gets one's money back for any money paid for apartments in the Sai Baba ashrams, and one is totally at the mercy of their whims as to whether on can live in them at all.

Sathya Sai Baba on going slowly blind from "sensual pleasures"
This supposed "universal world teacher" is a propagator of puritan howlers... that his students are taught such entirely fanciful things masquerading as "wisdom" is a travesty of truth and common sense.

Slander by Dr. G. Venkataraman & Joe Moreno Sathya Sai Baba's left-hand man - head of Radio Sai and member of the ruling Prashanthi Council, has attacked me on entirely false grounds, colluding with Joe Moreno, who promotes him and his web postings on his infamous blog 'Sathya Sai Baba - Love, Light & Spirituality' which contains more and more of the entire opposite to what its title implies:-

Sathya Sai Baba riches vs. spirituality Far from being in the tradition of the ownerless and strictly detached and selfless renunciate sannyasins of India, Sathya Sai baba is surrounded by massive ostentations luxuery, pomp galore on thrones and chariots and he controls a huge property portfolio and a multi-billion dollar mini-empire.

Authors who praise Sathya Sai Baba Many are the hagiographers who praise Sathya Sai Baba to the skies, but never blame him for a single thing and hide away all his glaring errors, contradictions, breaks of faith, plus all untoward events in his ashrams, including the many sexual abuse allegations and his being an accessory to the fact of murders

Broken promises by Sathya Sai Baba Among a long line of broken promises made by Sathya Sai Baba are those described by Sharon Purcell of California, whose son was sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba according to his and her testimonies

Sathya Sai Baba’s Followers Face Alienation In Their Wider Communities Many of those who have left the Sathya Sai Organization, having investigated the sex abuse allegations - contacting those affected - were held in high esteem for decades by the Sai movement. Sai Baba followers who remain, like Dr. Michael Goldstein, Dr. G.Venkatarman and other Sai cultists are bent upon obscuring this. Among their worst accomplices is the full time defender and attacker of former devotees on the Internet, Joe Moreno

Sai Baba soon to fly unaided in the sky? A famous prediction he made long ago which has not - and never will - come true.

Sai Baba declares he is Vishnu and Krishna come again Sathya Sai Baba has constantly claimed he was Rama too, and many others - not least the Avatar of Vishnu and Avatar of the Age (which means Kalki) - He has said he is the One Deity to whom all other deities pray!

Humble ignorance in 'knowing' God! Humbleness from fear, desire for blessings or other gains - worldly or otherworldly - is false humility. But it can also be a result of complete loss of autonomy, surrendering a true sense of integrity and conscience by becoming servile to a doctrinaire regime.

Atomic physics Puttaparthi style. Deeply intriguing Seldom has such factually and theoretically uninformed and mystical rubbish been spread as wisdom about the physical cosmos as by Sathya Sai Baba, whose main propagandist Venkataraman is himself a physicist!

Sai Baba Cultists’ Gull Wider Communities Sai Baba’s officials - not least Dr. Michael Goldstein - have scornfully turned their backs on large numbers to whom was owed duty of care. They have betrayed followers almost as badly as has Sathya Sai Baba himself.

The all too human side of him that has been exposed (i.e. considerable human failings) and is on the record as an indelible part of 'His Life', which he has always claimed is 'His Message'.

Sathya Sai Baba and celibacy The 'Suka Nadi' supposedly prophesied that Sathya Sai Baba would be celibate. How wrong it evidently was, to go by the mass of allegation of sexul abuse of young men and boys.

Healing by Sathya Sai Baba Did Sathya Sai Baba ever heal himself? Supposedly he did, even though he says he never heals himself because it would be a selfish act. Yet one can question whether he did heal himself, for he can have faked the illness he made into a public showpiece.

Sathya Sai Baba and the Internet Despite his proclamations against computer and the use of the Internet, Sathya Sai Baba Internet propaganda is rife.

Sathya Sai Baba ashram visits

Sathya Sai Baba birthday magnificence The stark contrast between the pomp and ceremony in which Sathya Sai Baba revels and the tremendous poverty predominant in India's population is a scathing comment on the disgusting misuse of donated monies by Sathya Sai Baba.

India’s ‘Emperor’ Sai Baba. By His Lavish Spending Ye Shall Know Him Sathya Sai Baba has invited the world to come to him with empty hands, so he can fill them. If lucky they get some ash, while he has succeeded in getting many to come to him with their hands full of gold.

In a land of dire need, Sathya Sai rides on a golden chariot Sathya Sai Baba's birthday this year was coupled with a ritual yagna, which Sai Baba has claimed is his main contribution to saving humanity from catastrophe! The gang of aged priests do not look like people who do service to the poor other than chant and preach.

Sai Baba 83. Has Said He Will Rule World The 'Golden Age' which he has prophesied for the world has not materialised - but he has a Golden Chariot from which to lord it over others. The world is not listening to his promises, they are of a lunatic nature.

Sathya Sai Speaks. ‘I Do Not Like This Pomp’ While he lavishes money on anything that will draw attention to himself, he claims hypocritically that he does not like the pomp (of his birthday and many other festivals). Yet it is only he who causes them, presides over them, encourages his staff to arrange them!

The vague and unworkable nature of the abstract idea of Unity (with God, all beings etc.) General speculative ideas of unity can be highly misleading and are used when to set up unworkable ideals. Pretending to have the moral high ground, religionists moralise and would judge (and denigrate) the behaviour of unique individuals and neglect the diversity of life and culture. Like many universal religious and political abstractions, they lend themselves to authoritarian agendas to obtain social control and manipulative power

When Facts Fly The Coop of Massive Cover Up On the problems of many dissenting Sathya Sai devotees in making public their testimonies, so that they only contact those who can be trusted to strict confidentiality. The social networking that ensues serves to protect many of the unwary from getting involved with Sathya Sai Baba or his followers in denial.

Sathya Sai Baba worshipped by India’s P.M.s etc. On Indian Prime Ministers and Ministers for Home Affairs as worshipful devotees of a man who claims to be God Incarnate, all deities in one and creator of the universe... a world laughing stock?

Getting to the Truth of Sathya Sai Baba Faced by concerted conscious deception, cover-up and deceit, considerable investigation is required to remove or dispel disinformation, propaganda and mere appearances concerning his actual behaviour of Sathya Sai Baba. One illustrative incident is portrayed and discussed

That Puttaparthi is a disease trap - especially at the birthdays - is covered up as much as possible by Sai officials. The dreadful hygiene at his "Super-speciality" hospital was also revealed by an Australian specialist.

Murder and repentence at Prashanthi Nilayam
Among the numerous reported murders at Sathya Sai Baba's ashrams through the decades, few are as remarkable as that perpetrated on Sai Baba's personally chosen gatekeeper Kumar. It is of the stuff of which horror films can be made.

IAS official and Sai devotee V. Ramnath libels Robert Priddy Despite his having been a lifelong official of the Indian Administrative Service, Mr. V. Ramnath attacks me - also using vile language - for having rejected his Lord and Master, Sathya Sai Baba, as a deceiver and abuser of faith and more besides.

Has Sathya Sai Baba Moved An Inch To Clean Up His Yard? The ailing Sathya Sai Baba has long said that he will first clean up his own ‘backyard’, India, before regenerating the whole of mankind prior to his death around 2022. Enough said!

‘World Hindu’ by 2030. VHP’s Singhal Reports Sathya Sai Baba Told Him A major Indian leader has just shared publicly a prophecy he says Sai Baba shared with him. Christians, Muslims, Jews, atheists and a thousand competing sects may take note!

Sathya Sai Baba's Greatest Achievements Looking at the track record of Sathya Sai Baba's social achievements, one sees that it falls very far below what he has promised since the 1960s for India and the world. The works - all done by followers (not by Sathya Sai baba himself, of course) are subject to many of the failures, faults and corruptions of many Indian social undertakings.

Overwhelming evidence and disillusion over Sathya Sai Baba More circumstantial evidence to add to the already overwhelming evidence of Sathya Sai Baba's alleged serial sexual molestations.

The World’s ‘Small’ and Forgotten Peoples Apart from constant preaching that he will lead a spiritual revolution unparalled in mankind’s history, Sathya Sai Baba's impact on thinkers in the sciences, economics, politics, and so forth is microscopic, while his much flaunted projects in India and elsewhere are on a relatively vanishing scale in world terms.

When Disasters Overtake S. Sai Baba’s Promises Given Sathya Sai Baba's failed promises to stay in perfect health and looking young, how can any reliance be put in his promises of 1. First saving India and 2. Saving the rest of the world - and all this within the span of his own lifetime?

Sathya Sai Baba descended to ’save India’ Despite his predictions of cleaning up India's problems, the poor suffer just as ever. The prominent Editor of Tehelka, S. Thakur, expert on Bihar's 100 millions, points out that the poor have not received any trickle-down benefit from India's recent boom.

Sai Baba says his close servants live for 100 years However the very closest long-term attendants including his official biographer, Prof. N. Kasturi, his editor of his journal V.K. Narasimhan, Kutumba Rao, his pujari Padmanabha Shastri, Kanhaia Jee, and many another died well before reaching 100 years.

Sathya Sai Baba's untruths about his never-failing perfect health He claims always to have total perfect health and freedom from illness, but numerous facts belie his claims, even his own words do.

Human Rights World Report 2008. India In Sore Shape World report 2008 in marked conflict with Sathya Sai Baba’s promises made over many decades. He has said that he would first "save" India and then the rest of the world - this within his own lifetime.

Michael Goldstein's chilling remarks Goldstein states that no Sai baba devotees were victims of the 9/11 World Trade Centre terrorist attack. He claims "His Miraculous Intervention on behalf of His devotees is clearly evident… They were either late or never arrived…"

Sathya Sai Baba and India in-depth study Many issues covered, such as India's profound levels of corruption and superstition, other issues that thinking Indians have great concern about like the appalling record in human rights, casteism, endemic corruption, attitudes towards women etc.

Sathya Sai Baba - Proof of the pudding Does Sai Baba ever lift a finger to look after his food, clothing, rooms, cars or anything? Yet he claims he receives NO service whatever from anyone! Further he says he has always respected everyone - but he has attacked his critics with base lies and demonised them. He claims the whole world respects him, but which of his critics do? And how can billions who have never heard of him respect him?

‘World Avatar’ Sathya Sai Baba’s Troubled Trail The eyes of faith are blind to the absurdities - or, if the oddities are pointed out to his believers, they will justify them in one way or another - for example, by citing his oft-stated saying “Love Me for My mystery”. The Procrustean bed works by both breadth and width.

Sathya Sai Lies - part one
A new series documenting and commenting on lies and untruths told in his writings and/or discourses by Sathya Sai Baba, who alleges he always speaks only truth and is omniscient as to past, present and future! He has no money or properties - but then he speaks of giving money himself! He does not publicise himself, but he does so on a huge scale constantly. He claimed his critics take money to defame him, but none are known or shown to have every accepted money from anywhere.

Sathya Sai Baba Says He Dislikes Pomp One of the world's most avid consumers of pomp and circumstance, golden thrones, sumptuous apartments - seen in countless photos on the Internet - claims he does not like it, but he either sets all of it in motions himself, or gives his blessing to such suggestions by others.

Miracle of the two Sai Babas How a gullible man from Australia thought he had experienced a miracle, and how this imaginary 'miracle' convinced another that Sathya Sai Baba is the Godhead he claims to be

Sathya Sai Baba vs. Richard Dawkins The standpoints of Sathya Sai Baba and the world-famous genius of genetics and biological evolution could hardly be more opposed. The essence of this difference is shown here.

Conversations with Rita and Robert Bruce - Joy Thomas' trials at Prashanthi Nilayam and more

Russia's war on Georgia and Sathya Sai's predictions In 2002, Sathya Sai Baba was recorded in a group interview as saying that all war would be at an end on earth by 2007, and that the Golden Age would begin then. The war between Russia and Georgia alone is more than enough proof of the fraudulence of his prophesy.

Smear Campaign against critics of Sathya Sai Baba Robert Priddy comments on attacks on critics of Sathya Sai Baba by internet libellers, a shameless copyright infringer and dirty trick exponent who use character assassination in the attempt to divert attention from the countless allegations of deceptions and crimes by Sathya Sai Baba.

Blind persons who seek cure from Sathya Sai Baba Reports circulated for decades that Sathya Sai Baba cures blindness have caused countless blind persons to travel to India hoping for a cure. V.K. Narasimhan, who was privy to everything in the ashrams while he lieved there for 1980 till 1998 told me that he had never seen anyone get a cure, nor met a blind person who had been cured by Sathya Sai Baba. He went blind in one eye himself, despite taking an operation on Sai Baba's advice and having 'holy ash' applied to his eye by this bogus Lord of Creation.

Prayers to 'Bhagavan' Sathya Sai Baba Driven by naive belief, Sai followers unthinkingly accept trivial everyday incidents as miracles just because they accept the false belief that Sathya Sai Baba causes everything that happens. They pray to him for advancement, peace in their families and to help them pass exams. Some hopes!

Experiences of Sathya Sai Baba devotees Simple people report miracles based on the simplest events, and - because they want to believe that they are protected in every detail of their lives by Sathya Sai Baba.

Concerning an Indian Administrative Service Officer, V. Ramnath Refutation with relevant details of a personal attack by V. Ramnath, an officer of the IAS who first warned me of covered-up facts about the 1993 murders in Sathya Sai Baba's bedroom.

CNN-IBN Reports Action On Corrupt Indian Gurus CNN-IBN carries a report by Sanal Edamaruku summarising some recent cases of sex abuse and other crimes by Indian swamis and gurus.

Visiting Sathya Sai Baba ashrams (photos) Information for visitors to Sathya Sai Baba's ashrams - facts that one cannot find out except by hard experience because the ashrams are always written about in most glowing and gushing terms - a self-censorship all devotees impose on themselves (so as not to be banned)

Avatars: Rama and Krishna reborn as Sathya Sai Baba? The Ramayana tells stories of deities and demons, and Sathya Sai Baba preaches that the stories about Rama are true - despite their fabulous and litersally incredible nature! He claims to be the reincarnation of both Rama and Krishna, as do so many other gurus.

Sathya Sai Baba identified with man-lion Narasimha As if to convince villagers of his nature as an 'avatar', young Sai Baba reportedly appeared most convincingly as if he were a lion-man (like the avatar Narasimha). He has also put on raging countenances to correct or cow his servitors, and a strong element of fear is evident in those close to him.

‘God’s’ Ex-Shah, Indulal Shah In The Hindu, June 10, 1993, it was reported: “When press persons met Mr. Indulal Shah, chief functionary of the Sri Sathya Sai World Trust, he said, ‘the matter is purely internal and we do not wish to have any law enforcement agency investigating into it.’”

Sathya Sai confirmed ten avatars Though claiming to be The Universal teacher of this Age, Sathya Sai Baba preaches the Hindu belief in God incarnating in human form. This is totally contrary to Islam, which admits of no representations or embodiments of Allah, and also to Christians, for whom only Jesus is a Divine personage, the Son of God - not God as such?

The BBC and the 1993 murders The notorious murders in Sathya Sai Baba's bedroom and the criminal investigations that were quashed and covered up at the highest level of government will not go away.

Undisputsable facts about Sathya Sai Baba by BBC The chief facts of importance in exposing the deception and fraud by Sathya Sai Baba by the BBC in the documentary 'The Secret Swami' are listed and explained, with links to all relevant transcripts and documentation.

Sai Baba miracles Are miracles - such as the Shirdi Sai Baba statuette in Bangalore which supposedly opened an eye - what they seem. Is belief in miracles anything more than belief? How do they improve the world or the person who believes in them to solve the real problems faced?

Sathya Sai Baba Educare teaching The oft-repeated supreme aim of Sathya Sai Baba's "spiritual teaching" is to cause the mind to die! Literally, erasing all sensory impressions and knowledge of the world in favour of a supposed omniscient understanding of the entire universe. This idea is behind attempts to attract followers to Sai aba through child and youth 'human values' education or so-called 'Educare'.

The Two Sai Baba’s and Miracles. (Intro) Miracles and supraphenomena are commonly reported around the globe in connections both with religions or without. What we take for granted are the vast achievements of human beings without miracles, which far outshine apparent so-called 'miracles', none of which have been scientifically controlled or validated.

Legalistic Abuse: Catholic Church And Sathya Sai Organization The Pope's recent apology about sexual abuses in the Catholic Church while visiting Australia has not been matched by Sathya Sai Baba... who is most widely accused of sexual abuses of young males.

Unique Shirdi Sai photo - privately owned At an orphanage in Sri Ranga Patna, near Mysore, a man called Halagappa has a photo of Shirdi Sai Baba which is apparently unique (i.e not available in public). He attributes the phenomena of ash and nectar are miracles granted by Sai Baba, but there are many good reasons for doubting them.

Sathya Sai Baba as the Vedic Trinity: Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva The excessive claims of Sathya Sai Baba are without any bounds whatever. He says he is all Deities rolled into one, the Father who sent Jesus, God Incarnate, Shiva and Shakti in full manifestation and much more.

Miracles vs. Magic - Sathya Sai Baba Vir Sanghvi, a leading modern journalist in India, challenges Sathya Sai Baba miracles and his devotees denials of the overwhelming sex abuse allegations against him.

International awards and Sathya Sai Baba Sathya Sai Baba has received no International awards, but his devotees in the Indian Government submitted his name to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee. However, his track record is so soiled in so many ways - and is so well publicised - that his chances for that are nil.

Sai Baba's Mission to Save India Despite having promised long since to clean up India - before saving all humanity, Sai Baba is still worshipped by India's top politicians, though India is still a land of major calamities! AIDS is but one of the huge problems Sathya Sai baba has never addressed.

Sai Baba's health - miracle or self-sacrifice? The second hip fracture Sai Baba suffered (in 2003) was operated but caused him to be stuck to a wheelchair for the remainder of his days. Untruths flourished so as not to lose followers and to cover-up the scandal: that the omnipotent avatar could not heal himself.

Sathya Sai miracle of transformation of India? Sai Baba has long promised to clean up India and solve its sufferings and problems before he dioes likewise for the whole world. He has not long to live, but India is still suffering the direst of calamities, among which are AIDS, extreme poverty, killings and violence for racial, religious, sexual and physical abuse of children etc.

Self-documented Folly of India’s Would-be God Huge discrepancies - true schoolboy howlers with colossal historical/religious error - are found in the "Omniscient" Sathya Sai Baba's published discourses. This is a man of many "stories" indeed!

Sathya Sai Baba teaching on sexuality Total abstension from sex by all unmarried persons is Sai Baba's requirement. Minimum sex in marriage is advised.
Otherwise, this self-proclaimed Universal Teacher has nothing to say about sexuality - a fundamental human drive which raises countless social and moral issues. Homosexuality and AIDS are totally taboo subjects for what must be obvious reasons (to non-believers).

Sathya Sai Baba Bans But Permits Foot Touching in 2001, Sathya Sai Baba said that his practise of 60 years, of offering what he deems to be his Holy Feet to be touched or kissed, should stop. Because it causes a sense of distance between man and God (i.e. him!)

Sai Baba promised Rs. 100,000 to orphan parents Sathya Sai Baba was amazed to hear that an Indian mother took her own life because she could not support her child. Where has he been all along? In ashrams like Prashanthi Nilayam (Home of Cloud Cuckoos), protected from the real world and living without a care, well provided for and insulated from ordinary people, surrounded by yea-savers. Did he hand any money out? Who could ever tell!

Shirdi Sai Baba's name hi-jacked by Sathya There is research showing the difference in values and teachings between Shirdi Sai Baba and that of Sathya Sai Baba, who has usurped his name and to do so made unfounded claims that Shirdi Sai predicted he would be reborn as Sathya. This is rejected by the main Shirdi Sai Sanasthan.

Sathya Sai Baba's foreknowledge of events? How did Sathya Sai Baba know in advance, as he has stated in a public discourse he did, of the coming murders of six persons in his own bedroom? An overview of the infamous 1993 incident where four devotees were murdered in cold blood in his bedroom by a blackmailed Puttaparthi police.

Sathya Sai Baba as ‘The Divine Mother’ Shocking evidence in a hagiography by a life-long devotee of Sathya Sathya Sai Baba on his draconian punishment of her son while a baby boy - relentless, frequent beatings!

Sathya Sai Baba Bans But Permits Foot Touching After 60 years of offering his supposed 'holy feet' to be touched and kissed, Sathya Sai baba realised that it cause a sense of seperation between himself and others! So he banned it, but still permitted it to happen despite that. Typical of his complete disunity of word and action!

Undiscovered Photo of Shirdi Sai Baba Interesting photo of the so-called 'saint of Shirdi' has surfaced. Shirdi Sai Baba must not be identified with Sathya Sai Baba, who has with some success usurped his name and fame by taking the name Sai Baba.

Sai Baba's miraculous omnipresence? A Sathya Sai devotee's experience of a miracle of omnipresence by Sathya Sai Baba is easily explained. Some 'cold reading' was probably involved, which is demonstrated superbly by the UK illusionist Derren Brown.

After Leaving A Cult. Or ‘Moving On’ Barry Pittard considers the psychological questions raised by those who become disafected of a guru or leave a cult. Where these people are non-selfish voluntary workers, they are inclined to find new outlets for their services, sometimes in other spiritual organizations, sometimes not.

Sai Baba promised vast miracle soon There is not so long left for Sathya Sai Baba - at age 82 - to perform his greatest miracles as promised - that is, to life an entire mountain range and to fly through the sky unaided.

Global disaster predicted - or not? Among the many rumours Sai Baba starts in interviews (demanding it be kept private) are numerous predictions of a coming global disaster. Despite his cautions, he surely knew that many would spread the information - and he had reports of it spreading. yet he waited over a decade before having to refute this - in the best known prophesy case.

Sathya Sai Baba World Cult At Odds With Itself The erosion of the Sathya Sai Baba cult from within - the sigs of the inevitable decline of its influence and some reason for this.

Sathya Sai Baba miraculously 'shows' 10 avatars Fabulous, unconfirmable stories are related as sheer fact by Sai Baba biographers Prof. N. Kasturi and Ra. Ganapati. Sathya Sai Baba - himself claiming to be an avatar, is claimed to have shown all the former Indian avatars to people in visions and 'illusions'.

Professor Anil Kumar, Sathya Sai Baba's 'left-hand' man Sathya Sai Baba sets the strictest moral standards as regards sexuality - no sex outside marriage, chastity while unmarried, minimum sex even within marriage. Yet he has a philanderer as one of his closest servitors and his interpreter, Professor Anil Kumar!

Sai Baba seen in ritual fire (photo) An example of a supposed 'miraculous manifestation' of Sathya Sai Baba in the ritual fire (homa) to which offerings to the gods are made by Hindu devotees. It requires imagination and belief to see it as anything special!

‘Secret Swami’ Cult Recruits At Prime Public Venues So as to recruit new followers and members, big money is spent on promotion at expensive venues. This sect that Sai Baba promised would cover the universe, however, has not made noticeable progress since he was exposed.

Believing in Sai (photo) and spiritual growth Sathya Sai Baba's claimed omniscience makes some followers lose all sense and reason in favour of faith in him. But simple explantions lie behind many - if not all - of his supposed 'miracles'

A Strong India Can Bless The World Barry Pittard on Mahatma Gandhi - India's greatest inspirational leader

Shirdi Sai Saint’s Fame Spirited By Puttaparthi The hi-jacking of the revered saint of Shirdi's name - Sai Baba - by Sathya Narayana Raju of Puttaparthi has been questioned widely, such as by the scholar Marianne Warren.

Sathya Sai Baba - amazing sun miracle photographed? Sathya Sai Baba is presented in a photograph as holding the sun in a space between his two hands. A close look shows that some kind of double exposure is involved, such as is possible with almost any normal graphic editing software.

Sathya Sai Baba as 'Divine Mother - photos Sathya Sai Baba has a long history of cross-dressing, not least wearing saris, and even today wears a more female -looking attire than male clothes. The many sexual allegations against him indicate that this is not a coincidence.

 Shirdi Sai Saint’s Fame Spirited By Puttaparthi Sathya Sai Baba - originally called Sathya Narayana Raju - usurped the name of the famous saint of Shirdi, Sai Baba, when he was 17 years old. The hi-jacking of a revered saint of Shirdi has been questioned widely, such as by the scholar Marianne Warren.

Outright defenders of sexual abuse by Sathya Sai Baba Abject rationalisations by Sai devotees of crude sexual abuses they attribute to Sathya Sai Baba. These defenders of sexual abuse have had pages on-line for years, but the Sathya Sai Organization has not commented, but their pages are circulated within the Sai movement.

Ex-king Gyanendra of Nepal & Sathya Sai Baba Two different persons are worshipped as the Incarnation of Lord Vishnu... ex-king Gyanendra of Nepal and Sathya Sai Baba of Puttaparthi. Both are suspect, both have powerful accusations against them. The former murdered King of Nepal - himself seen as Lord Vishnu - and his Queen are said to have worshipped Sai Baba.

Sathya Sai water projects The projects to bring water to deprived areas and to Chennai were financed by Sai Baba followers worldwide. Though fruitful, much waste, corruption and unpredicted developments occurred, which it is now taboo to mention in the Sai movement, or even in the Indian press.

Miracle story - Sathya Sai Baba Sathya Sai Baba is credited with a miraculous healing of his fractured leg - yet all the indications are that there was not fracture - even his own statement to that effect! Professor Anil Kumar - his interpreter and true believing blind follower relates the old story yet again.

Sathya Sai Baba Miracles - with photos As with many of the amazing Sathya Sai Baba miracle stories, they do not stand up to the slightest independen investigation. Not only has not one of them been tested and found genuine by any independent scientists, but fraud has frequently also been shown to be involved, as in the rescue of an airplace over the Atlantic ocean.

How many million Sai devotees? Why the unreasonable fixation on grossly exaggerated numbers of adherents of Sathya Sai Baba? It proves nothing whatever as to goodness or truth - but is largely the result of indoctrination and entrapment through hearsay, clever propaganda and other techniques.

Sai Baba's self-glorification and his disparagement of others On Christmas Day, 2000, Sathya Sai Baba angrily denounced his critics with abuse and lies, while congratulating himself on his own achievements

The Sai Cult Trumps At Law, but is just a ‘Bookshop’ The Alaya Rahm case was wirhdrawn due to a legal technicality, there was no body in the US to sue, and Sathya Sai Baba could not be sued outside India, where he has government and Supreme Court protection.

Sathya Sai Organization damage-limitation after BBC exposure Organized attempts to done down the presentation of Sathya Sai Baba's miracles and excessive claims. Also, after the BBC documentary 'The Secret Swami', Dr. Goldstein set about strict controls of what members of the organization could tell the media (see his instructions).

BBC Hidden Camera in ‘Secret Swami’. Ethical? In 'The Secret Swami' the team had to film with a hidden camera to get the elusive chairman of a world organization, Dr Michael Goldstein of Covena, California, to face grave questions. This exposed his true nature as anything but sweet and softly spoken.

Deception against Sathya Sai Baba Sathya Sai Baba was roundly deceived by a Swedish imposter, Dr. Michael Nobel. Both his vaunted 'omniscience' and any plain common sense he has left failed when Sathya Sai Baba proudly announced how his own majesty had attracted Dr. Nobel, a far relative of Alfred (who was later denounced officially for announcing he would award four new Nobel Prizes). But Sai Baba did not realise with whom he was dealing - and employing

Sathya Sai Baba lack of awards
In hope of getting prestigious international award, Sai Baba and/or his officials jumped the gun. He has received no important awards so far, nor does he stand a chance, it appears, neither for the coveted Nobel Peace Prize, nor yet an Asturias Award.

Sathya Sai Baba as Nobel Peace Prize Candidate Sathya Sai Baba got excited by the visit of Dr. Michael Nobel (the great grandnephew of Alfred Nobel), thinking he might help get the Nobel Peace Prize for him. However, the Swedish Nobel Foundation complained of Dr. M. Nobel's attempts at meddling in the Nobel awards and threatened legal action.

Sathya Sai Baba official website deceit exposed In an attempt to deceive followers, the Sathya Sai authorities reposted an article in an archive on their official website - an entry which they were earlier Having been forced by the Duke of Edinburgh's representatives to remove bogus claims of a Duke of Edinburgh award to Sathya Sai Baba from their official website, the Sathya Sai authorities waited and sneakily reposted the article in an archive on their official website. Such attempts to cover up serious (and laughable) errors and wilfully deceive followers and visitors to their sites are not uncommon. No debate or comment which is not 100% positive is ever allowed on any official website or document.

Study of ideas of eternal, unconditional, selfless love How the idea of love is 'sublimated' to an otherworldly realm and become anti-life and a subtle means to manipulate and control people both by secular interests and even more so by religions and cults.

Recorded talk with V. K.Narasimhan during 70th birthday of Sai Baba VKN's view on numbers attending (FAR below Sai Baba's estimates) and on his having to edit out Sai errors from the journal, plus Sai Baba's private directions to Central Coordinators concerning the organization and the price of rooms for delegates to his conference, who were originally invited for free logding etc.

Sai Baba's teachings and education in academic isolation Through political clout, Sathya Sai Baba got his Institute of Higher Learning recognised as an University. However, the whole social and academic environment is based more on fixed values and indoctrination than any kind of educational research or dialogue, being a law unto itself isolated from the world community of open debate.

The Dalai Lama and Sathya Sai Baba Systematic comparison of the personalities of the 14th Dalai Lama and the Indian supposed God-guru Sathya Sai Baba, examining their circumstances and behaviour, their personal qualities and public relations. Further, the facts are summarised in sixteen brief questions on my blog here.

Joseph. Early Sathya Sai Baba Whistle blower When devotees of Sathya Sai Baba finally bite the bullet and understand that the sex abuse allegations are true, they begin to recall incidents which shocked them at the time but which their powerful faith enabled them to rationalise or even simply push aside. Such is the case of Joseph, who Barry knew - a very shocking treatment by Sai Baba's 'Seva Dal' acting as true goondas to suppress a whistleblower.

Inescapable and undeniable recorded facts in the documentary by the BBC Though there are some small inaccuracies in the 1 hour film (which one fanatical, obsessive defender of Sai Baba - even while believing him to be a sexual abuser - disingenuously claims are major flaws!), they are of absolutely minimal importance compared to the overriding facts that are simply recorded for all to see and hear.

Conny Larsson is interviewed in 'Cyprus Today' He is a best-selling author in Sweden and tells about sex abuse by Sathya Sai Baba, and about his new book about to be published 'Flower Power,The Beatles, Maharishi and I''. See also Conny Larsson interviewed in 'Cyprus Times' where he recounted his extraordinary life story in brief.

NEW Sathya Sai Baba: Questionable Stories and Claims. Part 2 Blatantly incorrect, capricious, misleading, based on erroneous beliefs and unfettered imagination are some of the characteristics of the stories told by Sathya Sai Baba as if they were factual truth.

Sai Baba Researchers’ Huge Debt To Scholar Brian D. Steel By winnowing this enormous mass of varied documentation currently available about the guru Sathya Sai Baba, his 60-year spiritual Mission and his organisation, the former follower and author of a major Sai Baba bibliography - Brian Steel - makes it possible for anyone more readily able to separate fact from fantasy and research from propaganda in the interests of a fair evaluation of the complex Sathya Sai Baba story.

The Sathya Sai Organization’s Damage-limitation efforts Documentation of the Sathya Sai Organization's disingenuous efforts to hide the most megalomaniacal proclamations of their 'Divine Lord Incarnate' and to spin his profile for the consumption of more educated people.

The Dark Underside of some prominent Hindu gurus Bogus gurus or swamis are many in India today. Though bringing them to justice is hindered by police and judicial corruption in India (as reported by The Times - see below), not all gurus are criminals, sex abusers or involved in murder. However, more and more are being charged and convicted by some Indian authorities. See also The Indian Guru Issue On India Interacts

‘The Times’ reports on gurus, sex, money, power In the last two decades, many Indian gurus have been convicted of murders, sex abuses, embezzlement, swindle, bogus healings and fraudulent 'miracles'. The Times reported on the latest example of this tendency, in Kerala.

Supercool Indian Gurus Under Fire Looks at some of the super gurus who have come under serious attack for crimes, are indicted or are already imprisoned.

Sai Baba - mankind to blame for every natural disaster Blaming natural disasters on scientists who explore nature to increase their own "unrestricted enjoyment", Sathya Sai Baba makes himself a laughing stock - an ignoramus who claims to know everything without exception.

Burma cyclone and China earthquake - Sai Baba's views Top Indian politicians - PMs and Presidents - worship Sai Baba, who claims ALL natural catastrophes are caused by the bad conduct of mankind (cyclones, earthquakes and tsunamis!) How can they even remotely quietly condone such ignorance and religious superstition?

Sai Baba World Cult Leaders Fail To Meet Concerns on Libel The Sathya Sai Organization singularly failed, year after year, to meet deep concerns of many former devotees and equally failed to act on a recent open letter to the Prashanthi Council about their condoning libel and character asassination on a large scale.

Dangers to the lives of critics of Sathya Sai Baba Murders, murder attempts, burglaries and criminal sabotage have been used against critics of Sathya Sai Baba. The unaccountable Sathya Sai institutions and organization do not even condemn these clandestine methods by those who defend them. on Godmen in Andhra Pradesh The Indian website Tehelka-com published an article about sex abuse remarks on the similaries between various Andhra Pradesh godmen and how they are protected from prosecution, not least Sathya Sai Baba.

Photos of Sathya Sai Baba - Shirdi Sai Baba
Comparison of well-known photographs of Shirdi Sai Baba and Sathya Narayana Raju (who took the name Sathya Sai Baba) give a graphic comparison of the genuineness of their practise of personal renunciation.

Information on Sai's prediction of his death by Ratan Lal, and other incidents

Sathya Sai Baba: Questionable Stories and Claims, by Brian Steel. Part 1 Ignoring all this familiar belief-centred information, concentrate on valuable insights into SSB’s self presentation to his devotees and the world, mainly in the 35 volumes of his translated and edited Telugu Discourses (Sathya Sai Speaks), published and widely marketed amongst devotees by the Sathya Sai Organization over the past 50 years. You may be surprised...

Sai Baba on wise and mad monkey minds
Sathya Sai Baba picks on interviewees to say they have worse than 'monkey' minds, but 'mad monkey minds'. He wants no one to see, hear or speak anything bad ("evil") about anyone or anything, but really he means about himself (he speaks ill of others himself)! All this is part of his cover-up activity.

The Goa murder case cover-up, and similar events concerning Sathya Sai Baba
The Goa murder case is still unsolved due to protection by police authorities of a top person - which is a known proven failing in various states of India, not least Andhra Pradesh where Sathya Sai Baba escapes prosecution due to top level protection.

Lunatic Devotee claims he is Prema Sai
Another amusing farce around Sathya Sai Baba - the premature birth of his next incarnation, so-called Prema Sai Baba, in the form of a divine Internet surfer!

Sathya Sai Baba’s Unique Avatarhood Hi-jacked
Having proclaimed himself the only 'full' (i.e. 'poorna') avatar of this Iron Age of Kali, Sathya Sai Baba is now claimed to have blessed a book by a woman who claims to be the Shakthi half of the poorna avatar! These absurd and megalomaniac claims are making Indian leaders who worship the 'Sai avatar' yet more of a laughing stock than ever.

More sexual abuse evidence against Sathya Sai Baba
Yet another reliable witness tells of a warning he received about Sathya Sai Baba from Swami Muktananda after adjudicating in a case where two of his young boy disciples were sexually abused by Sathya Sai Baba! Yet another instance is also reported.

Dr. Jack Hawley - defender of the indefensible, business consultant turned religious cult indoctrinator
Writer of pseudo-management, pseudo-religious tracts whose dealings with the truth leave a lot to be desired

Scan from the Indian Skeptic 15-03-2008. The notorious kidney theft carried out at Sathya Sai Baba's 'Super-specialty' Hospital in Puttaparthi is evidently being suppressed by the Andhra Pradesh judiciary, which has many Sai Baba devotees.

The British Press on the BBC’s ‘The Secret Swami’ film
Few documentaries that the BBC has commissioned in recent years have received such unanimous praise from commentators in the British media as 'The Secret Swami' - exposing the sexual abuses and other deceptions Sathya Sai Baba has visited upon his followers.

Evidence of a mendacious activist on the Internet
Links to pages showing how a pro-Sai activist working full time to defend the Sathya Sai Organization and Sai Baba through character assassination of all his many critics, including many alleging victims of Sathya Sai Baba's sexual abuse and independent commentators

Summary of the supposed significance of the lingodbhava and an examination of evidence, with video clips

Not least to those who saw lingams emerge from his mouth at Shivarathri. However, Sathya Sai Baba promised Dr. John Hislop, his leader of the Sathya Sai Organization in the USA for decades, that he would attain 'liberation' from the wheel of life. Years later he told him to his dismay that he has to be reborn again. This is but one example of Sai baba's broken promises.

V.P.B. Nair. B.Premanand. R.Priddy: Sai Baba Bedroom Killings
Media, institutional, academic and other third party investigators are being made aware of the sheer extent of the evidence of criminal cover up by successive Indian governments over the years of the Puttaparthi police killings in Sathya Sai Baba’s bedroom

Banking on Heaven - the sectarian snare
The promise of heaven (salvation, liberation etc.) is so powerful as to blind followers to moral values, especially those who are tired of life and hope for a better world in the afterlife!. There are many similarities between the Warren Steed Jeffs polygamous cult and the Sathya Sai Baba sect, such as alleged sexual crimes by the figureheads, indoctrination, male chauvinism and more.

Will India clean up its Augean police and political stables
The Indian police and government's attempts to quash the murder of Scarlett MacKeown sends the same signal long observed, cover-ups to the highest levels in India, none more successful - and yet notoriously damaging - than that of the found young men executed by police in Sai Baba's bedroom.

The Sai Organization’s ritual ‘interaction’ revealed
In an attempt to create the illusion that the Sathya Sai Organization listens to its members and replies, a bogus 'interactive panel' demonstrates in its selectivity and non-answering techniques how cultist it really is.

Cult Exposure. By Their Documents Ye Shall Know Them
Barry Pittard's explanation on how the whole notion of interaction among Sai Baba followers in his organization can be seen as false by any reader not enmeshed by cultic (non-) thinking.

Personal libel as an attempt to avert serious criticism
To avert attention from the grave facts about Sathya Sai Baba and his Organization, its supporters saturate the Internet with attacks on critics, attempted character assassination on a large scale, web pages and blogs full of purposive side issues, nitpicking details and false statements galore of a very libelous nature.

Famous editor confronted Sathya Sai Baba
One of Sai Baba's closest contacts with the 'outside world' of India - famed chief editor V.K. Narasimhan, contradicted him over advaitic teaching (among other things). Having died in 2000, Narasimhan left Sai Baba without a single realistic corrective to his excesses of ignorance and ill-judgement.

Sai Baba is heralded as becoming King of the World for the last 20 years of his life, which is allegedly from 2000 to 2020! This bogus prophesy is STILL trumpeted around by believers in his Divinity.
The international tennis show at Puttaparthi botched by Sai Baba
The match between India and the Philippines at the Puttaparthi Tennis Stadium early in January was aborted after crowds were in place and TV already on air. The reason, confirmed by Indian national TV's sports director was that Sai Baba was indisposed and could not bless and inaugurate the match. But the official reason given was 'power failure'. see photos here
Article about Sai Baba's University
which documents that it is all propaganda, since it doesn't rank on any recognised or independent scale of academic excellence. Serguei Badaev reports that the Russian Sathya Sai Baba forum posted news from a person in the ashram at present who says that Sai Baba often misses morning darshans.

Extravagant misuse of donated funds and wasteful showpieces at Sai ashrams

The self-proclaimed Sai-loving Scotsman turned Indian, William Bill Aitken, wrote a book about Sai Baba, which has been reviewed most adequately by Brian Steel and found sorely wanting... Three articles on Bill Aitken and his relation to Sathya Sai Baba, the truth and other issues are found here:

Bill Aitken, bogus ‘religious expert’ on Sai Baba

William McKay (Bill) Aitken’s academic shortcomings

William Bill Aitken’s base attacks on serious critics
Champion tennis to boost 'spirituality' at top guru's ashram?
Sai Baba - miraculous or disastrous?
Is Sai Baba’s Governmental Influence ‘Miraculous’?

Some of Sathya Sai Baba's students are making fun of him - see here.

The author and ex-follower, Brian Steel, has posted by far the most comprehensive bibliography on Sathya Sai Baba so far available - An Annotated Bibliography for Research on Sathya Sai Baba  (in Three Parts) . He has just extended this major task by adding a third part of the Bibliography. All is impressively accurate and well documented, with fullest possible details of publication place and date and other identifications. It is also neutrally inclusive of both all Sai Baba pro-Sai literature/hagiography and the critical literature.

This is a resource for serious researchers (i.e. those who actually want to view both positive and critical views about Sathya Sai Baba and his movement).
Under the title New Factors for Researchers to Consider Brian Steel examines the use of other media than literature in the promotion of Sathya Sai Baba and the public responses he and his organization have made to criticisms.

Timothy Conway Ph.D. refutes an aggressive and vituperative cult defender's absurd, concocted claims definitively! The contents of infamous Dr. John Hislop's sex abuse cover-up letters were NEVER altered... and only Hislop had the original, because he sent out only xerox copies of them to centre leaders in the USA, with instructions to destroy them after reading. Nonetheless one set of copies survived (at the San Francisco Sathya Sai Centre).

The Sathya Sai Central Trust tries to dump the Sathya Sai Airport white elephant on the market
This airport was constructed and financed by the Indian Government - without it being clear how much was spent. through the then Secretary for Air M.K. Kaw (see 'Sathya Sai Airport - White Elephant for Sale' here). The Sathya Sai Central Trust - which is an entirely tax-free charitable trust - in now evidently losing a lot of money and is trying to offload it onto someone else. The Indian Airport Authority has already lost vast sums on the airport, which has saw no use for many years, followed by a very low turnover (mostly only 3 planes a week - a loss for the authorities). Whoever buys is will not have the tax-free benefits and will be dependent on the capricious Sai Baba, who leaves Puttaparthi and his ashram virtually deserted when he suddenly without warning goes away for long periods each year. Ca. 110 kilometers from Bangalore (and 70 kms from the coming new airport at Devanahalli), it is hard indeed to see how it will sell, unless the 2,000 acres of land added onto it as a temptation to property speculators is worth it. However, Sathya Sai Baba is well over 80 and has been a stricken invalid for years now, so speculators must hope he lives until age 93 or 96, both of which ages he has predicted for himself on different occasions. After his demise the bottom will doubtless fall out of his 'ashram market'. See here G R Gopinath, who pioneered low-cost flying in India with Air Deccan, denies having tied up with a Mumbai-based public figure to put in a bid.

Dr. G. Venkataraman of Radio Sai
is silent about this [and with good reason!] All this demonstrates quite excellently that Sai Baba followers constantly read anything into anything - even see what are told to see or simply want to believe they have witnessed. Miracle hunger is surely a kind of disorder of the soul.
